Hubby's biopsy came back today. 8 cores- all positive. Gleason 4+5=9. Bone scan and CT to be scheduled for either tomorrow or Thurday. Meet with urologist again Friday. Hubby's main concern--- he is deathly afraid of needles (had one broken off in arm as a child) and his blood vessels are very small and roll and colapse easily. He wants to know (and I am look at the web to find out) if the radioactive dye for the bone scan can be injected into one of the bood veins in the back of his hand? This is the easiest and least painful place for him. It is almost impossible to find the veins in his arms and trying to use the ones in his ankle/foot is VERY painful. If you knnow- please share ASAP so I can assure him.
